Fact: Anxiety is a condition that can affect anyone. Recent research suggests that as many as 1 in 6 young people will experience an anxiety condition at some point in their lives. [Anxiety UK]

A plea - to make mental health a subject that is openly discussed and acknowledged with the children and young people in your life every day of the year not just this week.
Nearly three in four young people fear the reactions of friends when they talk about their mental health problems yet 1 in 10 children between the ages of 5-16 have a clinically diagnosed mental illness.
